University Research Facility in Behavioral and Systems Neuroscience (UBSN)

The University Research Facility in Behavioral and Systems Neuroscience (UBSN) of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University was established in 2018 and is designed to be an interdisciplinary technological platform supporting the research endeavors of researchers not only from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, but also those from other higher education institutions in Hong Kong. It also serves as a key training hub for all who are pursuing scientific enquiry in neuroscience and related disciplines.

The UBSN is equipped with state-of the-art equipment that enables researchers to conduct cutting edge and impactful research. The equipment is classified into 4 categories: Behavioral Neuroscience, Brain Stimulation, Neurophysiology and Neuroimaging. Transcranial magnetic stimulation, near-infrared spectroscopy, transcranial ultrasound Doppler, electroencephalogram (EEG), optical topography system, and Dynamic Stability and Balance Learning Environment System (DYNSTABLE) are just some examples of equipment housed in UBSN. Of course, the highlight is our new 3T Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) facility. 

With our seven strategic research areas, namely, Brain Imaging and Artificial Intelligence/Big Data, Healthy Aging, Mental Health, Neurorehabilitation and Neural Repair, Human Development, Neurolinguistics, and Cognitive Neuroscience of Language and Culture, we are fully committed to tackling important research questions for the benefit of mankind, and nurturing talents among our students and young researchers.
